The health of people in Adur is mixed compared to others areas in England. 

Life expectancy is 6.9 years lower for men and 6.7 years lower for women in the most deprived areas of Adur than in the least deprived areas.

Hearty Lives Adur is a £100,000 partnership project working with Adur District Council to address inequalities in heart health. The team will be working with children, young people, their parents and carers in local schools and in children’s homes, with the long-term aim of reducing coronary heart disease.

Initial research will be undertaken with local target groups to assess their attitudes, behaviours and barriers to healthy living. Hearty Lives Officers and social marketing techniques will then be employed to increase levels of healthy eating and physical activity, and reduce alcohol misuse and smoking in children and young people.
